Columbus Large Image Format (CLIF) 2007 Dataset Overview

The CLIF dataset contains imagery from a large format EO platform. The data was collected in October 2007. The scene in this dataset is a flyover of the Ohio State University (OSU) Campus. The platform approaches the campus and loiters over the area.

The sensor is a large format monochromatic electro-optical sensor comprised of a matrix of six cameras. The matrix is 2 rows by 3 columns. Cameras 3, 1, and 5 make-up the top row of the image, respectively. Cameras 2, 0, and 4 make-up the bottom row of the image. Each camera was oriented in such way as to maximize coverage, yet allow enough overlap between images to help in mosaiking the image to form a larger image. The cameras, for this data collection, collect data at approximately 2 frames per second.

The CLIF Sample dataset is a single DVD containing:
